Hmmm ... yeah, this doesn't sound too good (and yet these are the folks that eBay is letting 'in the door'!?!?! ... go figure )Hmmm...that's the same seller who listed the same brown le dix hobo twice and ended it both times, then listed this with the same description. I was anticipating that this would end early also. You'd think a zero feedback seller would want to build atleast one positive. A couple of PFers had already bid on it so we'll see if one of them got it...I'm very curious.
I agree 100%. While I may be bummed when I see the seller end an auction for an offer I am thrilled when its a PFer who got the bag. she who makes the best offer wins, regardless if its another PFer or not I guess. What I dont get is why end an auction to sell to someone off ebay? I want ebays protection in the event something should go wrong, to end an auction so you dont pay final value fees is risky in my opinion. Unless theres something I dont know about ending an auction early, I would rather change the BIn or something so the person making the offer can win it (if theyre quick enough)I think among PFers there is a certain loyalty not to interfere with each other's dream bags etc - not something that is enforced within the forum by any means, but something that I've seen happen.
The seller is not a PFer and doesn't owe any of us anything - and it's not uncommon for a seller to end the auction early, especially lately, especially wtih desirable bags. So while it's a bummer, it's not the first time this happens, certainly not the last, and as we participate in submitting offers that make sellers end auctions early, we should not be surprised when it happens.
